The City of Santa Fe Arts Commission Community Gallery is seeking artists to participate in an upcoming exhibition featuring New Mexico furniture artists. In the music world, an orchestra awards a musician a chair or seat based on their ability. The best player in a particular section is given the “principal seat” or “first chair” in a band or orchestra. The chair exhibit will feature the best chairs produced by local furniture craftspeople in New Mexico. All types of furniture-makers, from traditional to modern and sculptural to functional, are encouraged to submit portfolios for consideration. This exhibit will feature approximately 30 chairs created by local artists.
The Community Gallery is planning the exhibit to run from June through August 2014. Artists are asked to provide portfolios of previous work for review no later than June 28, 2013. Artists will be notified of their participation by the end of July, 2013.
Interested artists should submit a portfolio of their work to Rod Lambert, Community Gallery Manager. Portfolios should consist of 5-10 printed images of the artist’s work on standard digital print paper and an artist statement, resume and/or bio. Please be sure to include a cover letter stating your interest in being considered for “Chairs” as well as complete contact information Portfolios should be addressed to Community Gallery, PO Box 909, Santa Fe, NM 87504. Portfolios must be received by June 28, 2013 for consideration.
